Cierra shares her story to help others battling addiction

By Diane Benningfield

So proud of my niece, Cierra Bowman. She is the same age as Cally (my granddaughter) was and has battled addiction like Cally did.

Fortunately, Cierra has overcome her addiction and loves to share her story.

For Cierra's birthday this year she asked people to donate to Cally's house through Joy Ministries, the shelter named in memory of Cally.

She drove down today from London with a vehicle full of donations along with some monetary donations.

I'm so proud of her and her joy for life. I hope anyone out there that is battling addiction reaches out to someone for help.
